Title: Finiteness of simple homotopy types up to s-cobordism of aspherical 4-manifolds (math.GT/0007185 , appeared in the  Internat. Math. Res. Notices, no. 3., 2001, 165-171 .)

Abstract: In this note we show that for a large class C of aspherical 4-manifolds each member of C has only finitely many simple homotopy types up to s-cobordism. This result generalizes a similar result of Hillman for certain complex surfaces. We also present a correction in the proof of Hillman's result.
